THE MORNING OEEGOXIAN, 3IOXDAY, JULY 25, IDIO.
Possibility of His Getting Dem
ocratic Assistance Is
COTTERILL IS PROTESTING
Republicans Say That if Candidate
or Senator Is Indorsed Through
' Help of Other Side, Legisla
te tors Need Xot Vote tor Him.
SEATTLE, TVaeh.. July 22. (Special.)
The possibility that Miles Poindexter,
Insurgent candidate for Senator, will
receive Democratic support at the Sep-
tember primary has aroused the op
position of leaders of both parties. Re
publicans have gone so far as to say
that if the insurgent secures indorse
ment through Democratic votes, the
legislators will not feel bound to vote
lor him. A notable instance is thtr
attitude of Senator Arvid Rydstrom, of
Pierce, who has declared emphatically
that no insurgent could get his support,
no matter how the indorsement as a
Republican might be obtained.
Democrats are taking the same
ground. When George F. Cotterill, of
lieattle, filed as a Democrat for the
Senatorial indorsement, he issued an
Address to members of his party
throughout the state. Cotterill has
heretofore defined his politics as ad
herence to the principles of Jefferson
Ian Democracy and Lincoln Republi
canism. At the same time, he is unal
terably opposed to any member of the
Democratic party calling for a Re
publican ballot at the primary in order
to vote for Poindexter.
He Insists that unless Democrats
file for legislative nominations, and
Democrats call for Democratic ballots
end nominate them at the primary,
there can be no possibility of success
ful opposition to the Republicans. He
States the case thus:
Cotterill Makes Protest.
"We would have no names on the
official ballot in most of the legislative
districts, and no method of getting
names on the official ballot would then
toe practicable either for Democrats or
for Republicans who would desire
Folndexter's election. Regular Repub
lican nominees for the Legislature,
openly rejecting and repudiating Poln
3exter's nomination, would be elected
In November unopposed, and the elec
tion of a 'standpat.' reactionary, con
servative Republican Senator at
Olympla In January would thereby be
made certain. I do not propose to en
courage action which would risk the
almost certain loss of every opportun
ity to apply Democracy at the Novem
ber election in order to engage in a
"loaded-dice" Republican primary in
Advocates of direct legislation have
een hurling darts at Governor M. E.
Hay. on account of expressions used by
him in a recent speech at Tacoma.
Christopher W. Horr, executive secre
tary of the Direct Legislation League
of the state, takes exception to the
iollowlng utterance of the Governor:
"There are those who now advocate
a return to the system that a race out-
rrew as it emerged from barbarism
they would have us, who are in the
midst of highly-organized civilization,
attempt to govern ourselves with a sys
tem that met the needs of a simple,
pastoral and barbaric age."
Mr. Horr cites the nomination of
Supreme Court Judges in convention as
o. betrayal of the people's interests, and
declares that direct legislation is the
most Important question before the
tate today. Paul Holbrook, candidate
for Representative in the Forty-Seventh
District, goes further, saying that
'once we fix the matter so that no
Legislature can 'deliver the goods' in
the way of special favors, then bribery
of legislators will cease."
Humphries Makes Denial.
Judge John E. Humphries corrobo
rates Senator John L. Wilson's denial
of a report that the two Senatorial
candidates had entered into a compact
whereby Humphries was to quit Sena
torial politics and try for the Supreme
Court. Judge Humphries declares that
at no time have he and Senator Wilson
lind any conversation, directly or In
directly, about the Senatorial race or
the Supreme Court Judgeship.

Although Secretary Nagel. speaking for
"Wickersham, who felt indisposed, would
not admit it and steered around the sub

political situation needs smoothing out at
once in order that the party leaders can
give their attention to fighting the grow

DRAW 260 FEET IN LENGTH
Albany Has Longest Wooden Span
In Whole World. -
ALBANY, Or., July 24. (Special.)
Work has begun on the construction of
a new draw span in the big Corvallis &
Eastern Railroad bridge spanning the
Willamette River at this city. A draw
260 feet long will be built, replacing one
of similar length and a new pivot pier
constructed beneath it. This pier will be
22 feet in diameter at the top and 34
feet in diameter at the bed of the river.
This 260-foot draw is the longest
wooden draw span in the world. Local
railroad men say there is no other draw
in existence so long as this one which is
not constructed of steel. For many years
the local bridge has held this record. The
next longest wooden draw span, which
was 240 feet in length, was on a wagon
bridge in California, which has recently
been replaced with steel, -so now the local
bridge has by far the longest swing
ing wooden span on earth.
It is said conditions in the river here
are such that as strong a draw can be
built of wood as of steel. The bridge
and the long trestle which adjoins it on
the north end are built entirely of wood
and the structure has stood in good con
dition for many years.
It will require about two months to
complete the new pivot pier and draw
span and the work will cost about 16.
000. The work Is under the direction of
John H. Stevens, of Albany, division en
gineer for the Corvallis & Eastern road.

other record Sunday attendance, the
17th annual session of the Willamette
pValley Chautauqua Assembly came to a
close tonight with a sermon by Dr.
Fletcher Homan, president of the
Willamette University. The feature of
this afternoon's programme was . a
sacred concert, under the direction of
Irving M. Glen, of the University of
Oregon, who has had charge of the
music during the session. The solos by
Mr. Glen were especially pleasing.
Dr. D. F. Fox, a noted Congregational
divine of Pasadena, CaL, preached this'
afternoon's sermon. He is one of the
finest historical lecturers ever heard on
the Chautauqua platform here. Devo
tional exercises and Sunday school,
under the direction of State Superin
tendent R. R. Steele, occupied the
morning hours in the auditorium.
The attractiveness of Gladstone Park
as a camping place was evidenced this
session as never before. Every tent
was secured prior to the opening of the
assembly and the resources of the
Chautauqua management were tr.xed to
the- utmost to provide accommodations
for the campers, who came here from
all parts of Oregon, one family coming
from far away Prlnevllle, in Crook:
County. The absolute restfulness
among the trees is peaceful, and the
accommodations provided by the X. W.
C. A. delicatessen and the stores on the
grounds made the life of the campers
The 17th annual session has been
one of the most successful in the his
tory of the "Willamette Valley Chau

entertaining and instructive through
out and the Chautauqua officials are
gratified at the unusual attendance,
which insured the financial success of
APPLE IS APPETITE-WINNER
Schoolteacher Sinks Fortune to Slake
DAYTON. Wash., July 24. (Special.)
Appetites often destroy fortunes, but sel

liking for good, mellow, Juicy apples.
Professor J. L. Dumas, ex-president of
the Washington Horticultural Society,
who recently sold a Pomona, apple or
chard three miles west of Dayton for
J150.000 after he had profited himself
$125,000 from the sale of apples grown on
the tract, owes his success. Professor
Dumas admitted today that success
came through his appetite, when he said:
"While I was teaching school In the
Hawaiian Islands in the early 90's, I fre
fluently had a craving for apples such as
had often eaten in the JNorthwest be
fore I went to Honolulu. I often searched
through markets of the tropical city, but
the best apples I could find were always
diminutive, shrivelled, flavorless speci
mens. They sold for as high as five cents
apiece. This led me to think that surely
there was not enough apples grown to
supply the world's demand, and so I re
turned to Dayton and purchased 140
acres near Dayton for $3000, which repre
sented my earnings from 20 years of
school teaching. My appetite was really

such a bearing down
sensation, as it the
lower narts would
fall out. Lydia E.
ble Compound has
done my nerves a
great aeai or gooa
and has also relieved
the bearing down. I recommended it
to some friends and two of them have
been greatly benefited by it." Mrs.
Mat, McKnight, Oronogo, Mo.
Another Oratef ul Woman. '
St. Louis, Mo. "I was bothered
terribly with a female weakness and
tiad backache, bearing down pains and
pains in lower parts. I began taking
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound regularly and used the Sanative
Wash and now I have no more troubles
that way." Mrs. Al. Herzoo, 6722
Prescott Ave., St. Ijouis, Mo.
Because your case is a difficult one,
doctors having done you no good,
do not continue to suffer without
giving JLydia E. Pinkham's "Vegetable
Compound a trial. It surely has cured
many cases of female ills, such as in
flammation, ulceration, displacements,
fibroid tumors, irregularities, periodic
pains, backache, that bearing-down
feeling, indigestion, dizziness, and ner
vous prostration. It cost3 but a trifle
to try it, and- the result is worth mil
lions to many suffering women.
